Via the Volokh Conspiracy, George W. Bush is not the first President to be accused to trying to be a dictator. These are political cartoons critical of Franklin Roosevelt's court-packing plan. FDR wanted legislation that would permit him to appoint one additional Justice for every then-sitting Justice over 70. That would have given him six new appointments and allow him to change the character of a court that had been striking down some of this legislation.
